Hello,

I have searched around in the forums and have done everything that I found that I hadn't thought of; followed Chirpys guide to tracking down a spammer especially; re-compiled apache with phpsuexec to see if it was a rouge script - I can't find any evidence in the logs pointing to anything ...

Code:

Note I have replaced my domain with mydomain.com.

Is there anything else that I can try to track this down? exim_mainlog is just filling non-stop with these sorts of entries!! The F=<> rejected RCPT is only now there as I am only now using :fail: to rid myself of these emails.

Thank you for any assistance in this matter.

Thanks for the reply. I was needing a second opinion on the very thing you commented on.

I've now put in place the exim_deny script and am scouring through the logs again.

I'm pretty dejected about this! Don't particularly want my domain being used to spam... even if it's a forged header!! :mad:
